Did last night's US presidential debate Wi-Fi rip-off break the law?

It cost them money to create that "professional capacity" wifi system. Why exactly do you not think they are entitled to attempt to recover at least a part of that expense? You think all that access is created for free? And no - this is not the same as the hotel. The hotel actively blocked access, here they simply told people to use their access or leave. That's their right - they owned and controlled the venue.
